Cherished are the memories that
Brought us to this day,
For yesterday, was just a “dream” …
A “wish” to contemplate.
A fantasy where in my mind,
A fleeting glimpse I’d see …
A vision of the true desires
I longed for endlessly.
And when I dreamed, I did not know
The love I’d feel today;
The height of my true feelings,
And the depths they would portray.
And if I had one wish today,
A simple wish t’would be …
Is that the love we feel this moment,
Reality has merged now
As you stand here by my side;
And as I join your hand in mine,
My heart does fill with pride.
For as I pledge my love to you,
I see in many ways,
Reflections of my love for you
Are mirrored in your gaze.
And by our presence here today,
And for the love we share,
I thank you for our yesterdays
That brought us to be here.
But more than this, I vow to you,
My wishes yet to come …
Tomorrow’s dreams and fantasies,
This day that we are one.
Tomorrow’s an adventure
That we’ll share together now;
Our future’s intertwined forever,
Through this holy vow.
I promise to remember
In the future years and days,
The love I feel for you this moment …
… Dreams fulfilled today.
For in the coming years as we
Move on, and reminisce,
Back to the day I stood with you
And promised with a kiss …
That blessed are the days that
I have looked into your eyes,
And felt the warmth and love reflect,
The essence of our lives.
“Yesterday” we dreamed of what might be;
“Today” we validate our love;
And “tomorrow” we will cherish the life we have shared as one.
